The FBI and Department of Justice are reportedly redacting key sections of sensitive material President Trump flagged for release this week; raising the stakes in an already tense relationship between the White House and the DOJ.
According to the Daily Caller, the FBI and Justice Department are scouring through the requested material; removing sections and redacting segments officials believe are unsuitable for release to the general public.
“Trump ordered sensitive materials related to the FBI’s Russia investigation be declassified and submitted for review Monday, including sections of the application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court concerning former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page,” writes the DC.
“Sources close to DOJ, the FBI, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said the agencies will likely propose redactions,” adds the article.

DEEP STATE DENIED: DC Court Demands DOJ ‘Preserve’ Comey’s Work Emails
A federal court in the District of Columbia ruled Tuesday that the Department of Justice must retain all of former FBI chief James Comey’s work-related emails, including those exchanged using a private account.
“On Monday, SaraACarter.com reported that government watchdog, Judicial Watch had filed a motion in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia, requesting that the Department of Justice preserve records from former FBI Director James Comey’s personal email account,” writes Sara Carter.
“The organization announced Tuesday that the Department of Justice has been ordered to preserve those email records and must review and release any ‘responsive, non-exempt records’ to Judicial Watch by September 28,” she adds.
The court ruled:
“[T]he Court will allow [the DOJ] until September 28, 2018, to complete its review and release any responsive, non-exempt records to Plaintiffs. That being said, [the DOJ} is also ORDERED to make rolling productions between today and September 28, 2018, at reasonable intervals, of any records that are reviewed and found to be responsive and non-exempt. In order to avoid any possible issues later in this litigation, the Court will GRANT [Judicial Watch’s] Motion. [The DOJ] is ORDERED to take all necessary and reasonable steps to ensure that any records that are potentially responsive to either of the Plaintiffs’ FOIA requests located on former Director Comey’s personal e-mail account are preserved. Although it contends that such an order is unnecessary, [the DOJ] has not explained why this preservation order would prejudice the Defendant or cause any undue burden.”
